Sonora, CA — Applebee’s hosted a truly successful Tip A Cop Night Wednesday for the benefit of Tuolumne County Special Olympics.

Representatives from the Sonora Police Department, including Chief Mark Stinson, the Sheriff’s Office, including Jim Mele, and the Highway Patrol were all on board for the annual fundraiser.

Each law enforcement officer teamed with a Special Olympics athlete to serve dinner to a full house. All of the tips were donated to Special Olympics.  And the total amount for 2010; $2.111.72.

This weekend the athletes will be participating in the Northern Region Basketball Tournament at Hoover High School in Fresno.
